Garden Microwedding Inspiration in Mobile Alabama

One of the best parts of being part of the Mobile wedding community is being asked to capture incredible experiences, like this garden microwedding inspired styled shoot. Our friend Susan, at LUSH, had coordinated with the Spring Hill neighborhood magazine about creating some sort of inspiration for couples who are planning a microwedding. Susan and her team are the masterminds behind the design. We just love the garden microwedding hosted at LUSH. It is just perfect!

Garden Microwedding Inspiration

In 2020, the trend of microweddings popped up pretty quickly given the state of the world. They’re slightly different than elopements in the sense that couples still have beautiful details, and a much smaller guest list. Whereas typically with elopements, we see only a few guests and a very light reception afterward. Microweddings are becoming popular because they still have the glitz of a full wedding day… just on a scaller scale. We were excited to put together some ideas for a couple who might want a garden inspired wedding!

So many pieces fell together quickly for our styled shoot. Including the fact that we didn’t have to go too far for a bride! Susan’s daughter is getting married and she was having her bridal portraits that day! We asked if she might be interested in modeling for us and she said she would be interested! Of course, Susan took care of the florals! LUSH is just the cutest little spot in Mobile! We were so excited to be back, after taking branding portraits there earlier this year. Susan went all out, creating the most intimate garden setting for a microwedding. We were able to capture all of the gorgeous flowers she put together. Seriously, we’re still obsessed with the colors and textures she created! Against our bride’s gown, the colors created the perfect contrast for portraits!

We are STILL obsessed with this styled garden microwedding inspiration. And we hope you will be too! PS, if you’re planning your intimate elopement or microwedding, be sure to reach out – we love capturing wedding days off ALL sizes!
